The best way to create Windows 11 Backup? Does Acronis Cyber Protect Home support Local Backup like Acronis True Image?
I would recommend Macrium Reflect v 8 Free / Home (for which you pay a one-off charge) edition.
Never had any issues recovering from MR v8 backups - works fine for both 'image' & 'file & folder' restores.I have had nothing but problems with Macrium 8. The make an image works fine BUT try to reinstall an image is a shot in the dark. I think it is something with Amd Ryzen that and windows 11.
I'm not aware of any of us Acronis users who've glossed over this fact. I certainly never did. The problem to me is many dismiss everything but Macrium. It is a good program, but it isn't the only imaging app out there. And yes, I also use Macrium but only for images, not backups. That's me.Hiwever recommending new users to pay for Acronis without acknowledging there are various free versions that generally meet peoples needs is not really being financially helpful.
I have Macruim Reflect running fine when making a system image. I can pick Hards or my Nas. Problem I have now when Macruim boots into recover mode it loses the Nas info to access. I am pulling my hair out on this.
When creating your rescue media, click the Advanced button and enable Legacy SMB v1 support.I have the same issue and it is because my ageing NAS needs SMB1 in order to be accessed, but SMB1 is not available in WinPE. You can only restore a system image using your rescue media and that uses WinPE. I get around this by copying the image file to a local drive prior to restore.
